Varnish is a web application accelerator platform, which caches info for quicker access. It is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it works between a web server and an Internet browser. When a visitor opens a particular webpage, the content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this browser request and sends back the required info. If Varnish is activated for a certain website, it will cache its pages on the very first request and if the visitor opens a cached page for a second time, the info will be delivered by the accelerator platform and not by the web server. The boosted speed is an end result of the much faster response speed that the Varnish platform offers compared to any web server software. At the same time, this does not mean that the users will keep being served the exact same content again and again, because any change on any of the pages is reflected in the content that the Varnish platform keeps in its memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

You can unlock Varnish’s potential and enhance your websites’ loading speed irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you have picked and you can activate and configure the data caching platform with a couple of clicks of the mouse via the simple-to-work-with GUI offered by our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use Varnish, i.e. the number of instances, and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory. The latter is offered in increments of 32 megabytes and is not bound to the number of instances, so you can use more instances with less memory and the other way around. If you’ve got a lot of content on a given site and you get many site visitors, more system memory will guarantee you a better result. You may also consider employing a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will provide you with simple one-click buttons for turning off or rebooting any instance, for erasing the cache for each website and for seeing elaborate logs.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with Varnish by default, so you can take advantage of the web app accelerator and increase the load speed of any site that you host on our platform. You will get 64 MB of system memory exclusively for the Varnish accelerator at no extra fee and you’ll be able to add an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server packages. In case you need more memory, the latter is available in increments of 32 MB in the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be available to you instantaneously. You can also order more instances as an upgrade, so you can decide if plenty of content will be cached for one site or whether the memory will be utilized by different websites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to check the system log associated with it or to delete the cached files using one-click buttons. To take full advantage of Varnish, you can get a dedicated IP for the Internet sites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Hosting

The Varnish caching platform is included by default with each of the Linux VPS hosting services that we are offering on the condition that the VPS is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you can improve the overall performance of your sites with only a few clicks. The more powerful the plan, the more memory will be available to Varnish, but even with a less powerful package, the caching platform will be able to utilize several hundred MB, so even if you run a number of Internet sites, you’ll notice a noticeable reduction in the server load and a considerably faster website loading speed. The Varnish caching platform will have to work for a while as the users navigate the website and once the site content has been cached, you’ll observe the effect. One of the advantages of using Varnish is that a lower-end and less pricey package will accomplish the exact same job as a more high-priced one without the caching platform, so not only will your sites work significantly better, but you will also save a certain amount of cash.

Varnish in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you want a more powerful website hosting solution and you acquire one of the dedicated web hosting that we offer, you will be able to use the Varnish platform to enhance the overall performance of your websites at no additional cost on the condition that the dedicated server is ordered with our next-gen Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-work-with graphical interface will permit you to keep track of platform processes, to delete the cached content or to restart any instance with one single click. The minimum amount of memory that the caching platform can use to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is quite enough for an enormous collection of busy websites, so your server will be able to handle a massive load while your Internet site visitors are having a seamless web browsing experience. As your dedicated machine will come with a number of dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum capacity.
